Living History in Northern Britain

Living History in Northern Britain

Starting and finishing in Manchester, this 10-night tour takes a more leisurely look at our ‘must see’ castles, palaces, garden, literary shrines, cathedrals and great heritage cities in North Wales, Scotland and England’s North Country.  Based in some of Best Loved Hotel’s finest properties, the pace will be unrushed so that each visit is memorable.  Highlights include:

 

  • A guided walking tour of the ancient roman city of Chester
  • A circular tour of Snowdonia with visits to Italianate Portmeirion and 12th century Caernarfon Castle
  • Beatles nostalgia in Liverpool
  • A leisurely cruise on Lake Windermere
  • Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter in the Lake District
  • A free day in Edinburgh
  • Visits to privately owned Scone Place and fairy tale Glamis Castle
  • A Roman Perspective of Hadrian’s Wall at Vindolanda
  • St Cuthbert and the Venerable Bede at Durham Cathedral
  • Your own pick ‘n’ mix choice in York finishing with Choral Evensong in the Minster
  • A visit to either treasure-filled Harewood House or Chatsworth House during the return drive to Manchester Airport
